Yes, it has been awhile since the last time I updated my blog. I have been so busy lately with work, family, friends and household chores. There were times when I thought of just giving up my first love, blogging, because of the negligence I make but here I am, keeps on coming back again and again. I think it's not that easy to let go of something that has been with me for almost six years, the thing that accompany me all through out my journey here in the USA. My one and only listener that never fails to complain, instead gives me a comfort.

Yesterday, I went to the lil one's future school. She'll be in kindergarten come school year 2013. Registration took place yesterday morning. Indeed, it was a successful one. I get to learn some ideas on what's going to up to once school kicks off.
Anyway, as I was driving on the way home, she mentioned about her activities as well as the things she wants to do on that day til the next. Mind you that her next is more like a future for us adults. She wants to go to dancing school to learn ballet. Another thing is music school because of wanting to get hold of a keyboard or a piano. Things she sees on TV, those are pretty simple for her to say and ask without knowing how much it would cost me and her dad. For me, I believe engaging into those activities would benefit her more especially when she's grown up. Maybe not only she'd be performing ballet in a huge event but play the piano and other musical instruments as well such as the classic simmons sdxpress which I haven't seen in my life.

When I received the products, I immediately tried the Pop Potato Chips. I was thinking of an unpleasant taste but I was so wrong on pre-misjudging the product. It turned out to be so good that even the husband consumed the whole bag, the biggest amongst the three I got, in just a matter of time.
Chips didn't really attract my lil one. The box of sugar-free cones was grabbed by her and asked for ice cream. Since I never stock ice cream and other sweets in my house, she waited til weekend before she could get a fair share of her favorite ice cream and this time in a cone. To tell you the truth, the sugar-free cones are really good. I never care for ice cream that time and just munched on the cones. You should see how the lil one reacted when she saw me eating more of the cones. She grabbed the box right away and hid it in the pantry. Oh, poor lil girl! Sorry, Mom had to have some.
On the other note, I have not yet to try the chow mein noodles as well as the crotons. Been so busy lately and cooking is the least of my priorities. Once everything settles down, I'll be updating you guys. I have a feeling that I am going to fall in love with the noodles since it's one of my favorites.
Anyway, please do visit the website for more products. There is an ongoing promo right now. Just refer five (5) friends to the site to be entered to a special drawing and receive a $250 gift card.

The Philippines, my home country, and other Catholic dominated countries are celebrating the Lenten season or the Holy Week. It is Holy Wednesday here in the USA. I feel so naked, so ashamed of myself because I just realized that it's already Holy Week and I have not been to church for quite a while. I have given a favored life, a vehicle to get to church in just five minutes but then I am not able to do so, instead, go to shopping centers distancing around twenty minutes to drive. So greedy of fun and forgot to feed my soul.
My only wish for now is to be in the Philippines where most Filipinos celebrate it heartily and where church-going is contagious. Maybe if I didn't leave my home country I would still be active in church. Maybe I am a regular volunteer and all. Of course, I say it because of remorse.
I am married to a non-Church believer. He thinks that going to Church won't save him from sins because Church leaders, themselves, are sinners as well committing abuse and other prohibited actions. The husband and I sometimes get in a debate about the existence of God. He believes in Science and I believe in both, Science and God. Surprisingly we are still together. Open-minded, that's the kind of person I am. I do respect each religion or belief. One thing I dislike is that being pushed of not believing the Holy Father. Since I am a very reciprocal person, there, a bomb explodes. Chaos it is! Leave me alone with my belief as I do to yours. We're gonna have a long road to take.
And hey, never talk to me about the bible as well. I have studied the bible in college. Four years of Religious Education subjects are certainly enough for me. I dealt with pages of the bible to read on for quizzes, reports and exams. There were topics that I loved the most (depending on the teachers) . At the end, I still am happy to have the Bible touched my young life.
It is such not a Holy Week for me. Seems like it's just a normal routine actually. Nothing so holSpecial. I am off today and tomorrow. As usual, do my rounds like cleaning, spending time with the lil one and deal with my product reviews on queue since last week. I have piled em up already. Some need to done ASAP.

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend?
Well I was off last night. Being that, I stayed up late yesterday instead of slumbering just to spend time with my family. We went watch a movie, visited my in-laws and ate at one of our favorite restaurants. Indeed, it was a well-worth Family Day for the three of us. The lil one enjoyed the Croods as well as playing with her cousin at the in-laws'. It so happened that the kid is staying with his paternal grandfather for the meantime and my in-laws' house is just a walking distance to his, the lil one's cousin just crossed the road by himself with both grandparents watching him in both ends. Kids love it when they're at their Maw (granny) because they get to play all they want both outdoor and indoor. When they get tired of toys, the kids turned on their own tables to read e-books as well as listen to the free audiobook downloads. Of course, it was great seeing everybody. It's been a couple of weeks since I chatted with them.

Wow, the week just passed by so quick! It's Monday again and it's Music Monday!
Today, I chose Toni Gonzaga's We Belong. The singer is infamous of her singing prowess, humorous hosting stint and comic films in the Philippines, my homecountry.
I created a video with me singing and the lil one when she was still a year old. How time flies! Just reminiscing that moment when she can utter a few words only.

Attending parties is simply not just hanging out with friends, colleagues and meeting new faces. For me, I gain more confidence in meeting people as well as building a bigger league. Not only that, I get to learn ideas on what theme I am gonna be having on my next party hosting.
Last week, I attended a kiddy party along with the lil one. It's my friend's one and only granddaughter's birthday and to my expectation, it was humongous. I have never been in that kind of party and take note, a two-year-old's party. It seemed like it was my friend's birthday because majority of the guests are adults. I could count the number of kids in my bare hands. And since it was themed carnival, there were decorations outdoor with a huge popcorn machine maker as well as hotdog heater. A small carousel enchanted the lil kids, too.
Upon seeing that, I knew right there and then how I am going to entertain the lil one's guests on her birthday in July. And since I can't afford a huge popcorn machine maker, I'll just make use of my own stove top whirley pop popcorn maker, pack it in a popcorn bag and wala! Also, I'll pack some goodies with candies with chocolates and toys. The kids (guests) will surely enjoy the lil stuff for them.
Hopefully, all my plans for my lil girl's 5th birthday celebration push through. I have four months to prepare and like I can start buying lil stuff until everything is completed before her special day.
And oh, thanks to my friend for inviting me over, I learned!
